Menu Monday + New Side Dish {3.9.20}

Even though my husband is a very picky eater, sometimes he surprises me! The last time I was at Aldi I noticed a new item in the Italian food section - Roasted Garlic Risotto. At less than $2 I thought it was worth a shot! I've never made risotto from scratch but I know from… Continue reading Menu Monday + New Side Dish {3.9.20}

Menu Monday + Paul’s Favorite Dessert {2.24.20}

This is actually more like two week's worth of meals instead of just one week. Sometimes we have weeks where I only end up cooking a couple times instead of 6-7 nights like I planned.

Menu Monday + Aldi Favorites {2.10.20}

  Although this week's menu plan was not sponsored by Aldi, it looks like it could be! I've been loving their version of the Everything Bagel Seasoning, especially on Avocado Toast.

Corn Saute’ + My Love of Frozen Vegetables

When it comes to weekly meal planning, I always prefer to serve fresh vegetables for my side dishes. That doesn't mean it always happens! I always have bags of peas, corn, broccoli florets and skinny green beans in my freezer. Here are three reasons I love having frozen vegetables on hand: #1 Frozen vegetables are… Continue reading Corn Saute’ + My Love of Frozen Vegetables

Menu Monday – Eating From The Pantry {1.6.20}

  After eating out quite a bit over Christmas, I was happy to be at our kitchen table for supper all week long. This was the second week of a two-week Aldi haul, so we were eating from the pantry/freezer and finishing up the fresh produce I had on hand. As you'll see from my… Continue reading Menu Monday – Eating From The Pantry {1.6.20}
